It wasn’t, now it is: The New Volkswagen Arteon

Press days at the Chicago auto show are wrapping up and while the city is in the midst of a snow storm, here’s some hot news from the event.

The VW Arteon, the CC’s spiritual successor, was originally revealed at last year’s Geneva auto show. Immediately, everyone on this side of the Pond wanted to know if this sleek and racy 4-door fastback was coming our way. The answers were vague but now it’s official.

The Arteon is based on VW’s MQB platform and will be powered by a TSI turbocharged 2.0-litre 4-cylinder engine good for 268-horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque. Standard will be an 8-speed automatic while 4MOTION AWD will be an option over the basic FWD setup.

There will be loads of technology available with the Volkswagen Digital Cockpit, Car-Net connected vehicle services, a Dynaudio premium audio system and more.

The car is expected in the third quarter of 2018.
